Forecast

Kripke (5/2), Mametz Wood (3/1), Book of Dreams (7/2), Crownthorpe (4/1), Regular Income (8/1), Che Bella (20/1)

Verdict

Between them Mark Johnston (four wins) and Richard Fahey (three) have farmed the last 10 running of this. Both has claims again and the former's BOOK OF DREAMS arrives in such good form and as a proven performer on heavy ground that he may be able to defy a tough-looking 10lb rise. Crownthorpe represents Fahey and is very much respected, with Mametz Wood looking a threat from the foot of the racecard.
